Does the mail get sent successfully?? Sorry for this but JIC, While in OE..Tools>Options>Connection (tab)>make sure "hang up after sending & receiving" is UNchecked.

Weird..What OS are you?? Are you trying to use the ISP's mail server or are you trying to send throught another like Yahoo,Hotmail,whatever?? If the latter it may be your new ISP lame attempt at port 25 blocking...Probably not just a random thought......This is a dial-up..yes??

Hi guys,thanks for the reply.This is win98 and yes this is being sent from the new isp,and not from yahoo,hotmail,etc.Thing is,am getting email and attachments from friends and everything works fine and when i hit the reply button and send them back a email,i do not get disconnected,it works the way it should.I think it must be a configuration problem because when i hit email on the program,i go to Earthlink mailbox,which i still have on my computer.I have to open IE,first then hit the email button to get to this email.Am waiting for the CD to come,then i'll uninstall,and re-install with that,and see if that works.

Thanks again for the help :D
